Additional Information

-- IMPORTANT NOTICE --

Dear Licensee,

  Senate Bill 20, as passed by the 79th Session of the Nevada Legislature is currently awaiting the signature of Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval.  Due to the legislative change, Nevada Educator License holders are no longer required to demonstrate knowledge of Nevada School Law, the Nevada Constitution, or the U.S. Constitution through testing or coursework to maintain a license.  The new law requires any licensed educator who is employed by a Nevada school district (except substitutes, as they are exempt from the requirement) to complete training in Nevada School Law and the Nevada Constitution as a condition of continued employment.    Existing licensees with outstanding provisions in these areas will have the provisions removed from their licenses automatically and should contact their respective school districts for further instruction.   The full text of Senate Bill 20 is available online at https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/79th2017/Bill/4628/Text.   For specific questions about how this change to the law might affect your license, you may contact the Nevada Department of Education's Office of Educator Licensure using the form at http://www.doe.nv.gov/Educator_Licensure_Contact/.  

Thank you,   Jason E. Dietrich
